vb2Py is a VB to Python tool for automatically converting VB projects to Python.
vb2Py is written in Python and runs on any platform which has a Python interpreter.
Once you have downloaded the vb2py package you will have a zip file. Before you can do anything you must have Python installed. After Python is installed you can install the vb2py modules by going to the directory you unzipped the files to and typing:
> python setup.py install
Now you should have a 'vb2py' folder in your Python site packages directory. You also need to make sure you have both PythonCard_ and Simpleparse_ installed on your system.
Once these additional resources are installed on your system you should be ready to go and use the converter.
Note: You do not need VB to run the converter!
